Rules to follow include…

  • Jacket length – a suit jacket should cover most of the zip at the front of your trousers and all of your behind.
  • How your shoulder of your jacket fits is one of the most important things to check. The seam should rest naturally on your shoulder and not move when you do.
  • Your jacket collar should closely just below the collar of your shirt.
  • The peak lapel will add some height by creating an elongating effect by moving the eyes upwards
